R-Patz To Play Kurt Cobain?

| Filed under: Music MinuteFilm FlickersCourtney LoveScarlett JohanssonRobert Pattinson

If he and Courtney Love have something to say about it then yes!

Universal Pictures is in talks with Kurt Cobain's widow to produce a biopic based on his life with the band Nirvana. Courtney has agreed to be involved if she can decide the main aspects of the project, like who will portray Kurt and herself.

Courtney's picks? Scarlett Johansson for herself and Robert Pattinson for Kurt!

And you know what? We don't disagree!

We think Scarlett has just enough talent to pull off Courtney's crazy (she can always drink whiskey for "inspiration") and if he grew out his hair, R-Patz would be a dead-ringer for Cobain.

Apparently, Rob thinks the same as when news of the part became Hollywood knowledge, he started calling and emailing Courtney non-stop!

Funny, we would have thought she would have tweeted about that! She tells us every other damn detail of her life!

What do U think?

P.S.- We know there are a bunch of Twi-hards that are having a Twi-hard-on for the news that R-Patz might finally sing again, but try and control yourselves!

    IF YOU DO THIS BITCH, YOU WILL BE DESTROYED



  2. 2

    hahahahaha no way.. scarlett may pull off courney, but no way rpattz can be kurt..

  3. penge says – reply to this


    3

    dude, do you ever check your sources?



  4. 4

    IT'S SUPPOSE TO BE JOE ANDERSON WHO SHOULD PLAY THAT ROLE. A LOT OF PEOPLE AGREE WHEN THEY WATCHED HIM IN 'ACROSS THE UNIVERSE'. COURNEY, YOU'RE GOING TO RUIN YOUR OWN MOVIE. THINK PROPERLY, AND STOP LETTING YOUR SCHOOL CRUSH CLOUD YOUR THINKING.
    PS: R-PATZ, I DON'T MIND YOU, BUT STAY THE F*CK AWAY FROM THIS ROLE, PLEASE.



  5. 5

    You have to be completely insane if you think your precious R-Patz with longer hair is a dead ringer for Kurt.



  6. 6

    Actually this is perfect! Rob is so talented and he can definitely pull off Kurt. So is Scarlett. Both will be hot in this movie.



  7. 7

    this sounds like the biggest abortion ever.



  8. 8

    Train wreck. Cobain actually had talent. Enough said.



  9. 9

    dead ringer?!?! ARE YOU FUCKED PEREZ? im not against him but Patz looks NOTHING like KC.

    I dont want a bunch of pre teen twihard twats coming to see a movie about kurt when they'll have NO IDEA what he stood for or the power of his music just so they can go 'omg! he sooooooo hot! I lovee him!'

    KILL ME NOW IF THIS IS TRUE



  10. 10

    Oh god NO!!! How the fuck does Robert resembles Kurt??????? If there is gonna be a movie about Kurt Cobain, my vote is for Joe Anderson, the blonde guy in ACROSS THE UNIVERSE… He DOES looks like K.C. AND has a great voice and most importantly IS A GREAT ACTOR



  11. 11

    I think this has already been debunked



  12. 12

    This was already confirmed as False. Way to be on the ball, Perez.



  13. 13

    John Stamos resembles Kurt Cobain more than "R-Patz". Get real. Fool.



  14. 14

    uh, these people look NOTHING like kurt cobain and courtney love. she's just picked out two beautiful people that she would like to see portray her and kurt.



  15. 15

    you're about a fuckin day late with this, perez.. like wtf..
    in any case, not a fan of Cobain, but i guess Rob is… and he's trying to be all serious and epic with his choice of next miovies.. and wasnt there a film made about Cobains life like two years ago? :/



  16. 16

    You have got to be kidding me Robert Pattinson be Kurt Cobain plain and simple no since you 'source' is The Sun I'm hoping this is just some ridiculous rumor one of the worst ideas I have heard in a long time.



  17. 17

    I can actually see this happening.

    Check Out GenerationGossip.com



  18. 18

    Wow…how dare you disrespect Kurt's memory by casting this guy? He looks nothing like Cobain. nothing. I'd rather see that middle Hanson in the role if you're talking about 'dead ringer'



  19. 19

    while i do think it's cool that rob and scarlett both sing professionally on the side, i just don't see him in that part. hopefully i'm wrong though because i do love rob =)



  20. 20

    No way—Jarded Leto



  21. 21

    NO NO NO NO NO!!!
    Joe Anderson would make the perfect Cobain! If you see his performance in the movie "Across the Universe"… look up his scene for Happiness if a Warm Gun! He's a dead ringer!



  22. 22

    SORRY, I don't think R Pats looks anything like Kurt Cobain!!



  23. 23

    Im not watching- not with that looser playin a legend



  24. 24

    FUCK NO! What a slap to the face of fans this would be.

    Besides Scarlett is way too good to be involved in this crapfest.



  25. 25

    It should so be Bert McCracken! He looks just like Kurt when he has blonde hair…



  26. 26

    that's disgusting, ew.



  27. 27

    Michael Pitt was a perfect Kurt Cobain in "Last Days"… Just look at that movie's poster and tell me you didn't for a second think it wasn't KC (better yet, watch the movie!). I understand beeotch wants to bring the big bucks, though. Ohhh, how I love crazy Courtney.



  28. 28

    also, there have been a lot of names thrown around for the part of kurt cobain - joe anderson, ryan gosling, ewan mcgregor, john stamos.. even zac efron and now robert pattinson? out of all these actors, i VERY highly doubt zac or robert will be chosen. neither of them have the talent to take this on and nirvana fans will not be happy if either of them are chosen.



  29. 29

    charlie hunnam!



  30. 30

    Scarlett Johansen, NOT! Courtney is built like a lanky dude. Scarlett is a short, curvy woman. Someone like Cameron Diaz would be better.



  31. 31

    No No No No No! NO!!!!!!! Just no. First Miley Cyrus, then Robert Pattinson? No.



  32. 32

    God I hate Hollywood.



  33. 33

    Re: XClaireXxx – you're retarded.



  34. 34

    I'm ok with R-Patz playing Kurt. He has just the right aloofness. But SCARLETT??? She is waaay too old to be matched up with such a younger guy and too old to play the rocker chick. It's a weird combo. I definitely see TAYLOR MOMSEN!!!! This is the role she was born to play!!! I will start a campaign now!!!! TAYLOR is COURTNEY!



  35. 35

    Robert Pattinson playing Kurt Cobain is like Justin Bieber playing John Lennon. Screwed up.



  36. 36

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSS



  37. 37

    BULL

    SHIT

    COBAIN WAS WAAAY HOTTER THAN ROBERT PATTINSON, NOT TO MENTION, HE HAD TALENT AT SOMETHING.



  38. 38

    Rob should play Courtney.



  39. 39

    Re: XClaireXxx

    you are so wrong i hate to be the one to bash you but trust me your so wrong!!!! Robert is NOT talented and HE could NEVER pull of Kurt. Have you even seen Roberts other movies other than the "Twilight Movies". BTW if any other actor had played Edward Cullen you would be saying the same thing. You have to remember Robert Pattinson is NOT Edward Cullen, he just plays him. If you go back and re-read the books Robert Pattinson sure as HELL does not fit the description of Edward Cullen. And not to mention Robert Pattison looks NOTHING like Kurt Cobain except for the fact that Robert has the grunge part down because he doesn't shower. But please DO NOT mistake Robert Pattison as a talented actor because he plays your favorite character from a book.



  40. 40

    Re: valentino2003 – NO DUMBASS. TAYLOR MOMSEN LOOKS NOTHING LIKE COURTNEY, AND IS A TRY-HARD COURTNEY LOVE WANNABEE. SHE HAS NO TALENT. GIVING HER THAT ROLE WOULD JUST INFLATE HER ALREADY HUGE EGO. THAT ROLE WILL GO STRAIGHT TO HER HEAD. PLUS DO WE REALLY NEED A BIGGER EGO THAN MILEY CYRUS'S OBESE EGO?



  41. 41

    This gossip was debunked even before you posted the Perez. Your "Gossip News" is soooo slow and behind everyone else these days



  42. 42

    what do I think? I think you're fucking crazy - R. Patz looks NOTHING like Cobain, with or without longer hair!



  43. 43

    OK, this was confirmed as false about five hours ago.
    It was reported in the freaking Sun!



  44. 44

    I like Robert Pattinson, don't get me wrong, but he's not Kurt. There are better choices out there for that role. Also, I can't see Scarlett Johansson playing Courtney. Courtney was always pretty out there, and Scarlett seems too polished to play her. Anyway, like some others have said, this seems to be a false story. I hope to God it is, anyway.



  45. 45

    Re: badnfluenz – I personally hate Twilight as much as you do honey. I don't take Rob as just good looking. I've seen his other films and did you check out Remember Me? He pulled that role off perfectly. Even though the film was heavily bashed Rob's acting was praised by critics. "The film's ill concieved ending should not be blamed on Pattinson." You can hate on this guy all you want but if he played the part, and if Courntey picked him, then that counts way more than your dumb ass talking.



  46. 46

    R-Pads can go fuck himself. To play Kurt, he actually needs talent. And besides, he looks nothing like him.



  47. 47

    r patts… i don't think sooo lol.. but scarlett would kill it as courtney..!!



  48. 48

    wtf theirs no freaking way in hell robert pattinson can play Kurt!! no way just noo freakin way!



  49. 49

    No Fuckin way! I would rather watch Miami Ink while getting my head waxed!



  50. 50

    WTF NO!!! Joe Anderson would be sooo perfect for that role.



  51. 51

    This was just a rumour and not true. But R Patz is very talented and could have done it. And R Patz is way better looking than Kurt who blew his brains out.



  52. 52

    Courtney Love killed Kurt Cobain. She should be rotting in prison instead of rotting in front of our eyes. BLEGH! KC is rolling in his grave at this news.



  53. 53

    Re: XClaireXxx – are you fukin nuts??? what planet do you come from?? are you smoking courtneys crack?



  54. 54

    oh perez, pleease work some of your magic. Kurt would flip his effing LID if he was to know somebody like Robert Pattinson were to play him. Nirvana has enough fans to make this film a success, the last thing we need is sugar snorting teenie boppers running around obsessing over "Kurt"
    Joe Anderson has a craazy similar image to Kurt's, Joe as Kurt would be a brilliant choice.



  55. 55

    dead ringer?

    I think you're wearing someone else's glasses….jesus wept.
    what a fucking tragedy for that kid to play Kurt.



  56. 56

    Re: XClaireXxx – your crazy.. he looks nothing or acts nothing like Kurt at all!! period.



  57. 57

    as much as i love robert.. im gonna have to say NO NO NO! kurt is probably rolling in his grave as we speak.



  58. 58

    I'm a huge nirvana fan and I think whoever plays kurt won't be right and offendthe beliefs of someones ideal of kurt this is simply because there is no one like him no one can just be kurt cobain. I don't think Robert pattinson is right for this roll but you never know he could pull it off and suprise people. Also if you say Rob isn't talented then you obviously havnt heard him sing and if you have and don't like it then you should apprieciate he has talent although it's not to your taste. But I assume most people who dislike twilight not all, but most will have a closed minded attitude towards him anyway so no matter what film he does in their head will never be right.



  59. 59

    Scarlett Johanson? really Courtney? please….She should get Ke$ha to play her she looks more like her



  60. 60

    THIS IS A FAKE RUMOR!

  61. DKB99 says – reply to this


    61

    It's not true. His agent issued a statement.



  62. 62

    Re: XClaireXxx – Courtney is basically a sellout now in day just because she thinks he is good doesn't mean it's true any true fan of Nirvana will tell you Robert Pattinson is one of the worstchoices for this. badnfluenz – sounds like their speaking from a Cobain's fan point of view and if this movie is made it should be for Kurt's fans they matter more than what you think of Robert's acting. In any case there saying it isn't true which I hope so. :)

  63. (: says – reply to this


    63

    Robert Pattinson CAN'T play Kurt Cobain!! if Kurt was alive what would he think? no no no no NO!!!! I smell a disaster. Rob fans would love it because they think he's "hott" but it's just no. He can't… please tell me this isnt true!



  64. 64

    Rob is in no way like Kurt Cobain. He's British, he's got an accent & he doesn't look anything like him. That's just wrong. I like Rob's acting but this is a mistake. And Scarlett is too good looking to be Courtney. They need someone like Lindsay Lohan to take that part after she gets out of rehab. This– and the fact that Stephen King steals my ideas–really pisses me off.



  65. 65

    This is blasphemy!



  66. 66

    SORRY, This is not true.

    I have to say I'm glad it is not true. As a fan of Rob's it would be such a bad move. Not something I would go an see. Kurt story is just sad.



  67. 67

    I'm finally over him. He's still adorable, but only hot hot hot as a vampire. Sorry Rob. Take the $$$ and run!



  68. 68

    If this movie ever get's made, Joe Anderson is the best person to play Kurt. Hands down. In Across The Universe when he is sitting by the water after he came home from the war, he looks exactly like Kurt Cobain. Ever since I saw that part, I always thought if they ever made a movie based on Kurt Cobain, Joe Anderson should play him. Rob Pattinson is a terrible choice.



  69. 69

    Oh for pete's sake people, talk about getting your underwear in a knot …. it's just a Rumour!!! My lord, you even rip Robert Pattinson up about something that isn't even happening! Hahahahaaaaa!! What a buncha idiots.



  70. 70

    NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  71. byho says – reply to this


    71

    naw .. i can't see him as kurt cobain… why don't they get an unknown to play him… or emile hirsch to play him.



  72. 72

    RPatz as Cobain??? A dead ringer he is not! There was an indy flick a few years back where Michael Pitt played Kurt and he was great. But actually the best "dead ringer" I ever saw was not actually even supposed to be Kurt himself in the movie but it was Ewan McGregor in Velvet Goldmine…check it out. Eerie. And if Courtney Love thinks she looks anything like Scarlett Johannsson, she wishes!!



  73. 73

    Seriously??? First of all Courtney love really needs to take her head out of her ass. Fuck Rob and Scarlett neither can pull of any ounce of talent if their lives depended on it. Poor Kurt is probably rolling over his grave just hearing about this bullshit! JOE ANDERSON and NATASHA LYONNE would be the perfect choice other wise the movie is going to suck balls and poor Kurt's life would of been told for nothing.



  74. 74

    Kurt Cobain would roll over in his grave if he knew a film was being produced around his and the other band members lives. Especially when its an acted (most likely like shit *cough* Rob *cough*) movie. He never wanted to be mainstream, and now that his train wreck of a mistake wife has a lot of the control of Nirvana that's all thats happening. I'm sick!! Why can't we all just appreciate the musical genius that was nirvana, and try and live in the present while RESPECTING the late & great Kurt Cobain, instead of bouncing on our cliche sharpied converses in alliance with the devil, otherwise known as Courtney "crack monster" Love. I mean, if you think about it, this wouldn't be a tribute, it would be a slap in the face to what Kurt really wanted, a lack of mass media MTV attention for little girls who have a hard on for a rock star they can't and will NEVER relate to.
    FOAD Courtney! Just become a prostitute like you were meant to be, you stupid bitch who can only play 3 fucking power chords with your shiteous band which flopped right onto you silicone injected excuse for a face.
    sorry for the ranting.
    RIP Kurt.



  75. 75

    I think they are both right to the roles



  76. 76

    What a disgrace to Kurt.



  77. 77

    Wrong again, Mario!



  78. 78

    Rob may not be a "dead ringer" but he might bring something to the table, same with Scarlett, and they might have interesting chemistry on screen since we have yet to see them do a project together. There was an afore mentioned comment about Across the Universe's Joe Anderson playing Kurt, I think this would be a smarter move, Joe has both the acting and singing chops (not to mention looks) to play Kurt. No offense to Rob's voice, but Joe is more Kurt than Rob, who is, less face it, too much like Van Morrison. However, I doubt a biopic is what Kurt would have wanted. I love Nirvana and what they stand for (and yes, I will always refer to them in the present tense). ANY movie surrounding Kurt throws fire to the "fame-flame" that he avoided to the extent of suicide. I vote no movie, unless it's an independent film…maybe…



  79. 79

    I think I just died a little inside. Kurt Cobain is (to me) one of the greatest musicians of all time and is true icon who helped change the face of music, and a pasty faced emotionless teenager is gonna play him? I want to cry. Kurt Cobain is currently in the after life throwing a fit because of this.



  80. 80

    Re: Pretty Boys Are Forever – i was thinking the same thing! Joe Anderson already looks the part and we know he can sing!



  81. 81

    They should cast 2 unknowns in this. That would help give it that raw walking on the edge feel that you get from Cobain. Plus then the movie would be more about Cobain and less about the actors.



  82. 82

    I heard Robert Pattinson is going to play Freddy Murcury in a bio flic and then he's gonna to play Luther Vandross and then he's gonna play Jim Morrison!!! C'mon!!! Let's see who can come up with the most reasons why he would totally suck!!! Won't that be fun?? Morons.



  83. 83

    Courtney is a crack head. And this is a fuckin JOKE!



  84. 84

    Is she crazy?! Joe Anderson should do it! Joe looks like Kurt and he can sing! Someone please get her to meet Joe Anderson pronto!

    Scarlett Johanson doesn't look anything like Courtney. Kurt will be pissed.



  85. 85

    WHAT?!?!?!
    Rob is in no way a "dead-ringer" for Cobain, hair or not!! If they allow this no-talent twit to play one of the most legendary musicians of all time, it'll be an insult to his memory.



  86. 86

    they can get some ugly crack whore off the street to play crackney love



  87. 87

    A movie? That would've been the last thing Cobain would want.

    And I don't think Robert Pattinson would be a good choice at all. Scarlett could do it though.



  88. 88

    i vote Busy Philipps for Courtney Love



  89. 89

    Joe Anderson for sureeee as Kurt and i vote Busy Philipps as Courtney



  90. 90

    There is no way Robert Pattinson looks anything like Kurt Coban, what the f! The best person to play Kurt Cobain is Jared Leto (even though you seem to hate him Perez).. Jared Leto can sing and looks just like Kurt when his hair is long and blond!



  91. 91

    Re: Tbones81 – exactly, jared leto for sure



  92. 92

    NO NO NO NO NO!!! What is she thinking?!?! Please tell me this is not true!



  93. 93

    rpatz does not look like kurt sorry

  96. 96

    NO WAY would Rob be the great person/actor to play as Kurt Cobain, whoever makes that decision to go with him is fucked in the head.



  97. 97

    JOE ANDERSON would make a perfect Kurt Cobain.

  98. lolli says – reply to this


    98

    OMFG PERFECT!!!!!! LOL I WOULD WATCH. MISCHA BARTON SHOULD PLAY COURTNEY… AND THESE FANS ARE FUCKING PSYCHOS, THEY WON'T BE HAPPY WITH ANY CHOICE.



  99. 99

    Josh Holloway would definitely be a better Kurt Cobain than Greasy over here.



  100. 100

    THIS IS FUCKING BULLSHIT, IM SO PISSED OFF. KURT IS MY IDOL AND THESE ACTORS ALL FUCKING SUCK. REALLY COURTNEY? U REAALLLYY THINK KURT WOULD HAVE WANTED ROBERT PATTINSON TO PLAY HIM. what a joke.
